All three players were signed by former boss Graham Westley last January. Coulthirst was close to joining League Two side Stevenage on loan on transfer deadline day.
“Shaquile wasclosetoleaving,” McCann admitted. “But wejust ran out of time to complete the deal.
“I’ve had a chat with Shaq and we agree that he needs to gooutand get somegamesuncer his belt.
“He is behind Paul Taylor and Tom Nichols and he is also now behind young Deon Moore so the chance of him getting a game is now limited.
“I like Shaq. Heisagoodlad who gives his all every game, but I have better options now.
“I also have Lee Angol to come back. He has been on the grass this week with the phyiso so he’s making a good recovery fromhis brokenleg.”
Coulthirst scored j ust three goals in 29 appearances (13 appearances were as a substitute) following his move from Spurs. Posh have also sent thirdchoice goalkeeper Dion- Curtis Henry on loan to National League North Division side Boston United until January. Henry (18) said: “I’ve been on the bench for the last two seasonsandasthere’snotbeenan under21leagueI’ve beenlacking game time.
“It wascrucialthatIgotmyself out, at least until January, if not for the whole season, to get games under my belt.
“At my age it’s important to play every week for the next five or six years so when I’m in my mid-20s I can become a regular first team player.”
Henry has made just one substitute appearance for the Posh first team.
